Merkel SS Rifle 140AE 160AE

SAFARI SIDE-BY-SIDE RIFLE 140AE – THE WORKHORSE

The basis version of the Africa rifles is the favoured gun of many professional hunters. The Merkel version of the Anson & Deeley boxlock is traditionally valued for its unrivalled reliability for big game hunting. An uncomplicated workhorse, based on the experience of over 100 years of rifle development for big game hunting. All the mechanical systems are doubled and can thus function autonomously – this is particularly important in dangerous situations, where life and limb are at risk.
